I might have hurt myself

September 18, 2011

The truth. Plato had 2 metaphors for the truth. In his cave analogy. Fire. Always changing but still remaining a fire. The sun. The absolute truth. I heard on the radio that the explosion of a super nova was thousands of times brighter than the sun. Outside of numbers how could anything be brighter than the sun. We cannot look at the sun. Is it the same for truth? Is it something we can never know. Because of our own species limitations. We know its there but we can’t look at it for long without damaging ourselves. I know I don’t seem to be going anywhere with this. But what if that is the problem with fanatics? They have stared at their perception of truth for so long that it has damaged them. I better stop now. I think I might have hurt myself.
